  1. An unknown error occurred when saving AI file

    Since updating to 24.2 on our Macs people are intermittently getting "An unknown error occurred" when trying to save an AI file. We have found in those cases outlining all the fonts will let us save. We are using the latest version of Universal Type Client for our font management.

  2. 作成したガイドレイヤーを削除すると、消えずに増える

    1. macOS(Mojave 10.14.6) Illustrator2021(25.2.3)およびIllustrator2018頃から 2.レイヤーパネル上で作成されたガイドレイヤーを削除。 (この時のガイドレイヤーは同一環境で作成された.Aiデータの場合も、別環境で作成された.Aiデータの場合も含みます。また、削除に関してもレイヤーパネル下部ボタンでの削除、キーボードのdeleteを使用した場合どちらも含みます。)
    2. ガイドレイヤーが、通常のレイヤー同様に削除される。
    3. ガイドレイヤーは削除されず、何も描画されていないように見える空のレイヤー(レイヤー名はガイドレイヤー)が複製される。元の削除操作を行ったレイヤーは複製されたレイヤー同様に何も描画されていないように見える空のレイヤーになる。再度、複製されたレイヤーと元の削除したいレイヤーをレイヤーパネル上でまとめて選択し削除すると通常通りに消える。

  4. Saving always creates a .tmp file, can't see preview of the file and cannot import AI file to After Effects

    as title says, my Illustrator 2020 (24.0.1) always creates a .tmp file whenever i save. I cant see a preview of the file when viewed on Finder. Lastly, I can't import the files i created using AI 2020 to After Effects - it only shows a blank artboard.

    Files are saved with Create PDF compatible File ticked.

    I have also tried resetting the Adobe PDF joboption settings.

    So right now I have 2 AI's installed just so i can continue working with my files.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting this issue.
    We are able to reproduce this issue for one scenario(Double Byte Characters in Folder Name) and investigating it further.

    Workaround:
    1)Open preferences→ File Handling & clipboard → Uncheck Background Save and click ok then try to save File.

    Please share Video or steps of any other scenario if you are able to reproduce this consistently at sharewithai@adobe.com with UV title with Tag [UserVoice] in subject of Email.

    Regards

  5. Live Paint Dead

    Wow, I haven't seen AI get this slow and bad at basic vector work in years! (Just might be way too bloated.) Had to delete latest version 25.1 and go backwards just to get my day job done on time.

  6. Adobe Illustrator 2020 (24.1.2)-The latest updated version KEEPS CRASHING on MacOS Mojave

    Hi
    I'm having crashing issues with the simplest movements like dragging, changing the type sizes, accidentally double-clicking etc.
    First the screen freezes.
    Later everything goes blank/my screen sometimes goes full black and forced shutdown follows.
    I'm using Macbook Air - MacOs Mojave version 10.14.6. (1.6 GHz Intel Core i5/ 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3).
    This is happening every time I open up AI without exception.
    Note: When I started my computer in safe mode-AI is working normally.
    What should we do?
    Thanks in advance.

  7. Scale tool does not remember previous percentage used

    Illustrator 24.2.1 scale tool does not remember the previously used scale setting as it used to do in previous iterations of Illustrator. When you Option click with the scale tool, the dialogue box now shows a random scale amount, sometimes a negative number, sometimes even too large for the tool to be used.

  8. delete anchor point tool selecting bottom object

    When two anchors of different objects are layered on top of one another, the delete anchor point tool will always select the bottom object, whether I have the top object selected or not. The add anchor point tool and direct selection will select the top object, but I want to be able to delete the anchor from the top object without having to go into isolation mode. This wasn't the case in the previous version.

  9. Save/Save As doesn't work in Action

    1. Make a new document
    2. Record a new Action for Save (CMD+S) and Save As (Shift+CMD+S), stop Action
    3. Do something in the document - Draw the rectangle for example
    4. Play Save/Save As Action
    5. Close the document (Attention!!! No warning about Save Changes!!!)
    6. Open the document

    Result: Opened document doesn't contain the rectangle.
    That means nothing happened with this document while Play Actions

    Illustrator ver. 24.0.2
    It is the critical issue and my suggestion to downgrade Illustrator to 24.0.1, if you use "Save/Save as" and "Close" commands in Actions in your work

  10. Fonts are not refreshed when right sided metrics are changed

    This issue happens in the context of editing the metrics of a font file multiple times (in order to view new metrics changes in realtime).

    Fonts will not always be refreshed to the latest version when overwriting a font file in the Adobe Fonts folder with a new updated version:

    • When a right sidebearing of a glyph is changed and the font regenerated, the font is NOT updated in Illustrator.

    • Whereas editing a left side bearing and regenerating the font will show the updated font with all edited metrics (both the new left & right sidebearings).

    Issue happens in all…

  13. Eyedropper tool not showing correct colors sampled outside of Illustrator

    When I click and drag the eyedropper tool outside of Illustrator to sample a color from something else (a website, pdf document, etc.), the color isn't correctly picked up.
    For example, if I move the eyedropper over something orange, it shows in Illustrator as blue or black; even if I sample a large white space, it shows in Illustrator as a different color. It seems to only be showing sampled colors as white, neutral, black/gray, and shades of blue.
    The program is up-to-date.
    I tried it in two browsers, Chrome and Safari, and the results were the same in both. …

    We have seen this issue specific to macOS 10.15. Enabling “Screen Recording” access right to Illustrator resolved this issue.

    You can change this setting by going to Apple > System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Screen Recording and add Illustrator Application.

    Please try this and reply in comment if the above suggestion worked for you.

  14. Illustrator could only partially read this file

    When I load the first attached file in 24.0.1 (with Windows 10) it loads OK and I can edit it. When I save it and try to reload it in 24.0.1 it says Illustrator could only partially read this file. That's awful when Illustrator cannot read a file it has just saved.

    The layers (and sublayers) under ALL > WATERWAYS > A-B beginning with A have all gone missing when it reads in what it can. Other parts may be missing too.

    It works fine in 23.1. and I have had to revert to using that.

  15. A blank white popup window opens over a file when opening.

    Closing the window gets it out of the way & I can continue. It only happens the first time I launch AI and then open a file.

    I'm on a 2016 MacBook Pro running Catalina & Illustrator 24.0.

  20. Illustrator Not Holding Clipping Masks

    Hello. I'm not sure if this is just an "operator error" or if this is a bug in the new Illustrator 2020, but every time I reopen my AI file the clipping masks have been removed. Is there a fix for this? It started happening when I updated to 2020.

    Thanks in advance!
